GLIMPSES OF ASKING BRIDGE
Impressed by the efficiency of "Pushing Hands" in Taijiquan in developing combat skills, some students have asked whether there is similar training in Shaolin. Yes, there is, and it is called "Asking Bridge". It is actually found in our Shaolin training though it is not specifically defined in the syllabus.
A special course on Asking Bridge was held at Sarriselka, Finland from 10th to 14th January 2011. The course also included Taijiquan Pushing Hands, Wing Choon Chi Sao and Wuzu Kneading Hands, and revealed many close secrets.
Only some glimpses of the course are shown here. Course participants and certified Shaolin Wahnam instructors who wish to view the private videos of the course are requested to contact Sifu Markus Kahila.
An illuminating discussion of the Flower Set and Asking Bridge can be found here.
